A significant icon and an effervescent memory in most little girls’ childhood, Barbie allows them to build an imagination of the future they want such as owning a Barbie Dreamhouse and a Barbie Corvette. Barbie is also a fashionista and trendsetter known for her extensive glamorous outfits and styles such as rocking superstar outfits, fancy gowns, vintage clothing, and casual chic.
Partnering with fashion designers like Calvin Klein, Burberry, Givenchy, and Juicy Couture, she has amazing style and always has great flair throughout the decades. Because we’re in love with her and so does everyone else, we will be designing a few pieces of jewellery inspired by the most expensive and popular Barbies.
Timeless Class Pearl Choker Necklace for Original Barbie (1959)
A revolution, an icon, and the moment, the Original Barbie was the first ever Barbie made and introduced to the world by Ruth Handler, co-founder of Mattel. The doll was inspired by a German doll ‘Bild Lilli’ which was based on a famous comic strip in a Hamburg-based tabloid.
The Original Barbie was born from the style of the ’50s, with a vintage chic black-and-white striped, strapless swimsuit, a pair of gold hoop earrings, and black heels. This Barbie is vintage summer and vogue of the ’50s.
The “Timeless Class” pearl necklace is a celebration of Barbie’s iconic style, a timeless accessory that transcends eras and trends. As you wear it, you’ll embrace the spirit of the Original Barbie, exuding class and charm that leaves a lasting impression wherever you go.
